The Spring term has been a very busy one! Our topic was Transport and Journeys. The children had loads of fun designing and building their own cars. The children were challenged to make these move using only rubber bands. They did amazingly well and had great fun racing them once they were complete. Here are some pictures of the making process and the final races:

 During this topic, we learnt about friction, air resistance and water resistance and how these forces impact upon different objects. The children completed some interesting investigations into whether heavier objects fall quicker than lighter objects, here they are trying to find out:

Their favourite investigation was to find out the features needed to make a boat float. Using wallpaper, the children made their own boats and were then told they would be tested to see how much weight it can hold before it sinks. They made some amazing boats and learnt lots about forces along the way!

 The Year 6 children have loved having Mrs Evans come into class to do Relaxed Kids with them. They have worked super hard this term and have enjoyed having this time to relax and find ways in dealing with stressful situations

We started the year with a fantastic residential trip to PGL. All the children had an amazing time and so many of them overcame fears, which was amazing to see! Here are some pictures of their time at PGL:


Space Topic – Our first topic of the year has been Space. The children have done lots of very exciting work including: turning themselves into aliens, making the moon phases with oreos and even having our own space-themed art gallery

Bonnie Visit – We were extremely lucky to have Bonnie come in and visit us. Bonnie flew over from Cambodia to share stories about her life and to show everybody how much of a difference Edukid has made to her life. Bonnie also came to visit us in Class 3 and taught some greetings and taught us how to say and write Khmer numbers.
